DMAR Digest | Week of March 7
Important Membership Announcement: Bylaw Amendments
Denver Metro Association of Realtors® (DMAR) members voted on and passed suggested bylaw amendments at our annual membership meeting that took place on February 24, 2022. Our leadership team along with a task force of DMAR members reviewed and revised our Association bylaws to reflect current practices, and align with the support of DMAR Chair, Milford Adam’s, our vision of making DMAR more diverse, equitable and inclusive for all members. Being a more diverse and inclusive Association will allow us to better serve our members and communities. With these goals in mind, two major revisions to the bylaws are:
- The addition of two (2) new seats on the Board of Directors: one (1) seat for the Asian Real Estate Association (AREAA) and one (1) seat for the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance.
- The return of the DMAR nominating committee for elections.
This compliments in representing all our community along with our current directors: the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP).

Russian Invasion May Impact Mortgage Rates
“When global investors sense increased uncertainty, there is a ‘flight to safety’ in the U.S. Treasury bonds, which causes their prices to go up, and their yield to go down,” says Odeta Kushi, deputy chief economist at First American. “Consequently, amidst heightened uncertainty due to the worsening events in Ukraine, there is a possibility that investors flock to U.S. Treasury bonds, which may result in a temporary, short-term decline in mortgage rates.” Read More
